Black Box Concert featuring Deep Sea Diver

The Numerica PAC presents the last Black Box Concert of the 19-20 Season featuring Seattle’s Deep Sea Diver. Deep Sea Diver, a band that lives on the edge of indie folk and experimental rock, urgently and deliberately moves you from drum and bass grooves to dreamy soundscapes and angular, rock experimentation to full-fledged orchestration. Front woman, Jessica Dobson has the voice and authority to tie it all together, creating a unique and cohesive sound. Dobson, who has played with the Shins, Beck and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, is no stranger to the music industry and considers Deep Sea Diver her greatest venture.

Opening for Deep Sea Diver is Seattle-based darkwave duo, Julian Blair. Julian Blair is the project of Wenatchee natives and brothers Gabriel and Ariel Martinez. Their music draws inspiration from indie pop and post-punk music with new wave influences to craft rhythmic, moody tracks layered with synths and programmed drum machines. Their debut EP “Common Occurrence” is available to stream on BandCamp.com. Numerica PAC Interim Executive Director and fellow Eastmont High School Alum had this to say about Gabriel Martinez “Gabe Martinez is the probably most talented musician that I have the pleasure of knowing personally. We grew up together and there virtually wasn’t an instrument he couldn’t master. Do not miss this show!”

Tickets to the Black Box Concert featuring Deep Sea Diver on March 7 at 7:30pm are $22. This show is made possible by Endsley & Co., Mercantile, Washington Trust Bank, Commercial Real Estate Services – Rory Turner, Sweetwood BBQ & Dilly Deli, Tumbleweed Bead Co., and Alpha Media.

Make the Numerica PAC your destination for a Ladies’ Night Out featuring these royal renegades who have tossed off their tiaras while comically belting out the truth in numerous sold-out runs in theaters around the world! Recommended for ages 14+

One Man Star Wars Trilogy

Coming to the Numerica PAC from a galaxy far far away is One Man Star Wars Trilogy. From the producer of Evil Dead! The Musical and officially endorsed by Lucasfilm, One-Man Star Wars Trilogy is part homage, part spoof of the original trilogy of the “Star Wars” films where actor Charles Ross single-handedly plays all the characters with spot-on voice impressions, sings the music, flies the ships and fights the battles. This show is great for Star Wars fans ages 6 to Yoda and dressing up in Star Wars costumes is highly encouraged! As Yoda would say “Go, you must”.

Tickets to One Man Star Wars Trilogy on March 26 at 7:30pm are $22-$27 for Adults and $11-$15 for youth. This event is sponsored by Colleen Frei & Arius Elvikis, Numerica Credit Union, Bart & Sheila Clennon and Cherry Creek Media.
